WKTV - Across New York State, the high school football season has been slated to begin on March 1 as part of the Fall II sports season. For local teams, the wait to get underway will be slightly longer.

According to Keith Kempney, Section III football co-coordinator, Tri-Valley League schools will begin practice on March 8. For this year, the TVL schedule will include Canastota and Holland Patent.

The Center State Conference will be broken into two divisions this season, based on geographical location with Oneida County schools and Herkimer County schools.

Oneida County schools, plus Notre Dame, will begin on March 15, while Herkimer County schools, plus Central Valley Academy, will start on April 5.

These dates are fluid and subject to change based on conditions of the coronavirus pandemic. An official Section III game schedule has not yet been released.
